Where can I find more information about the Library's regular circulation policies (loan times, fees, borrowing limits, etc.)
On this page.
If you have any books checked out that are due between March 1st, 2020 and September 14th, 2020, their due date has been extended to September 15th.
Please return your books to the book drop slot on the front of the Library building just past the bike racks instead of bringing them inside the building. This will help us quarantine and sanitize the books before returning them to the shelves.
If you need access to our Microfilm/Microfiche collections, please request an appointment using this form.
From the ILL Department:
We will begin requesting physical items on 8/17/2020. Please keep in mind that many libraries are not sharing their collections yet, but we will try to obtain your items from the ones that are sharing. Turnaround times for delivery may be higher than our usual 7-11 business days.
We had been renewing all currently checked out items because lending libraries were not accepting returns, however, most libraries are now accepting their items back, so the ILL overdue notices will resume on 8/24/2020. All currently checked out items that are due before 8/24/2020 will continue to be automatically renewed. You can check the current status and due dates of your requested items in ILLiad, under Checked Out Items.
We will continue requesting renewals automatically until 8/24/2020, but if you would like to return your ILL items, you can do so anytime you want using the bookdrop located on the right side of the library entrance, by the bike racks.
If there are extraordinary circumstances that prevent you from returning your loaned items, please let us know.
